A Canadian Forces veteran travelling across Canada to raise awareness for first-responders and other veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) passed through Shawville on Oct. 4.
Trevor Sanderson was a soldier with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry stationed in CFB Calgary from 1990 to 1994. He was released and went to work in Alberta’s oilfields as an industrial insulator. When the price of oil dropped and work dried up, he moved to Sydney N.S. and last year he ended up homeless for a time.
